STATEMENT FROM NYCHA CHAIR SHOLA OLATOYE ON SELECTION OF BEN CARSON AS HUD SECRETARY

NYCHA Chair and CEO Shola Olatoye said, “We hope to partner with the incoming HUD Secretary to ensure New York City’s public housing is not only protected, but strengthened for the next generation. NYCHA is the nation’s largest housing authority, home to more than half-a-million people. Our residents deserve the same quality of life and opportunity as all Americans, which means keeping the promise to fund public housing and Section 8 while also creating safer, cleaner, and more connected communities.”
